King Bey reigned over last night’s MTV Video Music Awards.
Not only did she give fans what is undoubtedly the longest performance in VMA history, took home the title for Best Female Video of the Year and completely slayed on the red carpet, she also gave Chance the Rapper a night to remember.

Chance, engrossed in the interview, didn’t even know it was her until she began to walk away. But his reaction to musical royalty’s touch was enough to give us serious #fangoals.
“Oh my God, that was Yonce!,” he said before stepping away to say hello to the Queen. While he was busy paying homage to Bey, the correspondent can be heard saying, “That happened.” But well trained in the business of media, Beyoncé didn’t let the MTV News’ reporter go unacknowledged.
